Bethlehem, ‘The House of Bread’
You hold a history by which we’re led
To proclaim a life within you born
The Messiah, Jesus, Star of the Dawn
Immanuel, ‘God With Us’, that was He
Whom Magi traveled far to see
They knew just what the bright star meant
They knew this child was heaven sent
At twelve years old He was found to be
In His Father’s house – He even held the key!
He spoke the Truth; He showed the Way
Through Him came Life of an eternal day
When you perceive this child upon the hay
What do you see, what do you say?
Are you wise like those men of old
Do you understand what you behold?
Does revelation touch your heart
That they have been right from the very start
Are your eyes becoming clearer, now uncovered?
This is the Son of God, Your Saviour, The Beloved.
